Experience Rating

Experience Ratings Explained

The star ratings are based on a variety of different criteria.

Namely it is a comparative aspect against the other lodges in this country and/or area. We like to think of this rating as a mix of the accommodation (please do remember just because the rating is lower doesn’t mean it is a bad lodge more that it maybe more of a rustic nature), guiding and wildlife in the area, food, safety and general vibe.

The lower ratings tend to either be due to being a rustic lodge or being in e.g a busy area of the park. This should be used as a general guide but please do contact us for more detail or check out the reasons why we love these lodges.

Lodge Key Features


Nestled in amongst the forest, The Stables Guest House provides three double luxury rooms for visitors wanting something a little different than the usual beachside experience. Each beautifully furnished deluxe room provides a comfortable 4-poster bed with canopy mosquito net, fan, en-suite toilet and sink. Relax and unwind on one of the balconies as you watch the sun set across the horse stables and working yard.

Horse Riding

Visit Kande Horse and experience one of the superb horse rides on offer. They are very professional and are able to cater for all ages and levels of riding experience from the novice through to the experienced rider. Ride by fishing villages, receive warm greetings from friendly children and see families involved in their day-to-day activities. Some of the rides will also take you through beautiful Brachystegia forests, via the local township of Kande, across stunning floodplains and along the breath-taking Kande Beach, and to finish off, ride bareback into Lake Malawi and swim atop your horse, it will be an experience we guarantee you will never forget.

Food Glorious Food

Beautifully home-cooked meals each day, with much of the produce sourced from their vegetable garden. A variety of different meals will be tailor-made to suit your taste. Meal times are flexible to suit activities planned for the day. The closest beach is situated 3km away at Kande Beach. It is a short drive away, a nice walk away or a fantastic ride away.

  • An amazing weekend – Thank you

    My daughter took one of their planned 2 hour rides through the forest, local market and down into the lake – an experience she will never forget. How often do you get to swim with horses?
    She then also had the opportunity to stay, help exercise other horses and work there for a day and a half. To say that she thoroughly enjoyed it is a massive understatement.
